“We must have a pure, honest, and warm-hearted motivation, and on top of that, determination, optimism, hope, and the ability not to be discouraged. The whole of humanity depends on this motivation.” — The Dalai Lama
“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.” — Margaret Wheatley
“Whenever two or more are gathered, I am there.” — Matthew 18:20
I have never seen instructional material, in leadership training or development programs, about convening groups and managing conversations in that context. More likely, the leaders’ mentors and role models have stood before masses and “told” the people how it was. Having simple, truthful conversations with people enables a leader to learn, and gives others a chance to speak, feel heard, and also to learn. This is the natural way humans think together. Listening moves us closer. Dialogue brings about innovative ideas. Thinking rocks the status quo. Widen your space for conversations – extend yourself in groups, suspend judgment, open your mind, and listen to learn.
